I would like to know if anyone has experienced hair loss while using betaseron and if so, do you have any suggestions or remedies to stop it?

Dear Anon,

Hair loss is a side effect of many of our disease-modifying therapies, I experienced it while on Copaxone. There isn't anything we can do about it, except perhaps change therapies.

Another thing to consider is that other drugs also cause hair loss, as well some medical conditions such as thyroid disorders, alopecia, some skin disorders, and heart conditions, not to mention the drugs used to treat them all. If you are taking other medications besides Betaseron or have any of those disorders mentioned above, you might discuss this with your doctor.

Thanks so much Kim for your response. I'm not taking any thing else, but I thinking about switching to the new texidera pill.
